Reviewed December 16, 2011

I stayed at the hotel for six nights in conjunction with a conference in La Paz. The hotel is in the Zona Sur, the lower part of the city at around 3200 meters of altitude. The lower altitude makes it easier to adjust to the high altitude. La Paz city center is at around 3600 meters.

The room was very nice and spatious with nice views of the lower part of the town. The breakfast excellent and something to look forward too. The business room was equipped with the latest computers, fast internet access. According to the locals, the restaurant at this hotel is one of the best in the area, if not the whole town and it was fully booked during the evenings, especially in weekends.

Service was good and friendly. I really cannot think about anything to complain about. If something, it was the distance to the city, but you cannot blame the hotel for that! All in all an excellent stay and I really recommend this hotel!

Very good location. Sleep at 3200 meter above sea level can make the difference of a good stay in La Paz.

The hotel is situated in Calacoto one of the nicest residential areas in La Paz, about 15 min a cab ride to city centre. The location is a plus considering it's 300 m lower than downtown (the hotel also offers oxygen service for people suffering high sickness). Rooms are very well design with plenty of room for a comfortable stay (nice beds + great sheets; good lighting; excellent shower; nice views). Room service is very good and has a good variety to choose from with very decent prices and tasty food. Breakfast was good too, but it didn't exceed my expectations. There's an spa within the hotel that offers different therapies and pool. I definitely recommend this hotel for business traveler and for leasure of course!

Room Tip: Higher rooms, best views and less noicy.

We picked Camino Real because it seemed like a professional hotel, but based on the service we received from them, clearly that was a mistake.

First we emailed them and asked about special rates. We were quoted rates far higher than were advertised on their website. I guess because I asked in English, they figured they could take an unsuspecting tourist. I ended up booking through the website, but then we had to change the date by 1 day. I emailed them to make the change since there was no way to do it on the website.

Three days went by, no response. I sent another email to follow up. Another two days go by, and I get a reply, cancelling my 5 day reservation and making me another one for one day only. The email is in very good English, as was the first one, so I am certain that the language barrier was not the reason. I send an email back explaining, in English and Spanish that this is incorrect and instructing how to fix it. Another two days go by, no response. Finally, I am fed up and cancel my reservation.

This is not the service you expect from a supposedly 5-star hotel at some of the highest rates in the Capital city. I haven't had this problem in any other city in Bolivia, at any other hotel. Unacceptable. This total lack of response clearly shows me the type of service I could expect to receive if I had kept my reservation.

Bolivia is not noted for good hotels, so it was a pleasure to find this one. The building is new, with an attractive design featuring an atrium that runs from the ground floor to the roof. The rooms are not really "suites" -- more a bedroom area plus a desk area -- but they are comfortable and clean. Bathrooms, TV, wifi, and other room facilities are all excellent. The reception staff speak excellent English and are very helpful. The restaurant is very good, and features a sumptuous buffet breakfast with both local and international fare. The location is also good, in a safe central zone. If you want an authentic Bolivian experience with all the traditional colonial or ethnic trappings, this place is not for you; but if you want a first rate international style hotel in La Paz, this one would be an excellent choice.

This is a great luxury hotel with a magnificent panoramic view of the city.
The rooms are large, clean, well decorated and comfortable. It is situated in one of the wealthiest and safest neighborhood.
Staff is very nice and helpful.
Breakfast is included and is really delicious.
I would certainly recommend it!
